Montana State Trooper To Be Released From Utah Hospital Tomorrow

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah — An amazing development in a Montana “State Trooper’s” recovery — two months after being shot in the face, Trooper Wade Palmer is heading home.

Utah State Troopers were amazed when Palmer woke up last month.

“It’s a miracle… I am in shock,” one trooper said.

He’s being released from the University of Utah hospital tomorrow.

Trooper Palmer was shot multiple times by a suspect back in March.

Montana Highway Patrol officials say he still has a long road ahead, but they are happy to welcome him home.
